Pat’s Favorite FireFox Extensions, Oct 2010

Here’s an update to a [intlink id=”53″ type=”post”]2008 article[/intlink].  Extensions have come and gone, and Firefox is much updated now, at 3.6.x, with 4.0 on the near horizon.

First, a quick note:  Yes, I still use Firefox as my default browser.  It works, it is extensible, and I’ve never had performance problems with it.  Yes, Chrome is out there, but every time I’ve tried it, it is broken in various ways (spellchecking, for one) and the UI decisions in it are perplexing.

And to my dearly departed extensions:  you may still be installed, but you got left behind and I can’t use you:

  • Google Notebook
  • InstantAction Game Launcher
  • Quick Preference Button
  • Reveal
  • TagSifter
  • UrlParams
  • WebDAV Launcher

    xMarks is interesting and still alive.

    the preview add-on is very nice too, just because I like knowing where I’m clicking. I think it works for shortening URLs too.

    I find myself intrigued by that Aging Tabs!
